A former coach said Henyekane admitted to a drinking problem

Manquoba Mngqithi, Henyekane’s former coach with the Golden Arrows said Henyekane admitted to a drinking problem while with the team – though he maintained that the drinking did not affect his performance on the pitch. Mngqithi said he was sad about Henyekane’s death, and blamed the problematic drinking culture in South Africa. “The problem is the culture of drinking in black communities has changed. It is no longer about drinking anymore, but we calculate the number of bottles you’ve drunk.”
